Personal Description:
I am a professional, dedicated and enthusiastic tutor with over 20 years experience, extremely quick at identifying student problem areas and devising the most efficient solutions, sometimes with budget or time constraints. Where necessary I focus on exam technique as I find many capable and knowledgeable students gain confidence (and marks!) once these skills are taught.

I am well-liked by my tutees who understand I want the very best outcome for them, and also that I appreciate they are under pressure to succeed, and my services are frequently recommended to siblings and friends.

Teaching Experience:

As well as many years continuous home-tutoring experience, I have taught in both state and private sectors since 1986; examples being Surrey College (Guildford), Horsell High School (Woking) and Farnborough College of Technology, and as recently as April 2013, the prestigious Seaford College in Petworth, W.Sussex.

I have a vast library of past examination papers in all my subjects at GCSE and GCE A level for Edexcel, AQA and OCR examining boards.

In addition I have some experience tutoring both common entrance and Baccalaureate Maths, Physics and Chemistry.

Tutoring Approach:

I appreciate that for most tutees private tuition represents a workload additional to both schoolwork and homework.

Therefore I aim to make tuition as interesting, interactive and productive as possible- whilst focusing on their objectives- usually a target examination grade. Experience has shown that students can expect learning progress with an experienced tutor such as myself to be without exaggeration, 2-4 times faster than could be made in a typical school classroom, whilst simultaneously gaining a fuller understanding of the topics covered.

Personal Description:
My greatest interest is my family - my husband and our four children aged 18, 17, 11, and 9. We enjoy many activities together, with the highlight being our summer holidays where we self-drive to various places in Europe.

I also love learning and have just started my masters degree in maths.

As the mother of four children I have to be well organised and efficient. I enjoy a challenge and love teaching. I can work well alone or as part of a team and I believe I am an effective communicator.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching maths from Entry Level through to Level 2 for teaching assistants, adults in the community and young offenders. I also teach "Keeping up with the children" courses for parents wanting to help their children. I have also been tutoring children in Years 10 & 11 on a 1-1 basis to help them with their GCSE Maths at Swavesey Village college.

In the last two years I have been working as a maths teacher at an independent secondary school in Cambridge.

I have recently been appointed the Head of Mathematics at a local prep school which I am enjoying very much. However this does mean that I am now only available to tutor during the school holiday.

Tutoring Approach:

I thoroughly enjoy my work. I relate well to children and adults. I believe its important to instill confidence and subscribe to an active learning approach with a variety of resources where possible. I also use a variety of alternative methods to meet individual learning needs as I firmly believe that one size does not fit all.

Personal Description:
Ciao, I'm a native Italian speaker graduated with honors in Linguistics (February 2013) and in Anthropology (2007). During University, I worked and travelled around Europe, Centre and South America further developing my language skills (Spanish, Portuguese and American native languages). I currently live in London to improve my English and enter a post-graduation course in Linguistics.
I'm passionate about other cultures and the interaction between people from different cultural backgrounds. I love learning other languages, travelling, reading books and drawing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring for 4 years and worked as an Italian teacher for foreigners, all levels and all types of courses (long and short course, one-to-one lessons, children, adults).

Tutoring Approach:

It is important to understand the students' needs and adjust the working materials to the Second Language level, the personality, the age and the mother tongue of each student. Also, discussing everyday life topics and subjects like culture, cinema, arts, sports and gastronomy are a pivotal part of my teaching approach.

Personal Description:
I am a highly organised and proficient language tutor with a Master's degree in Portuguese Studies from the University of Lyon II in France. I possess over four years of experience as a language tutor in England. I teach French, Spanish and Portuguese to all age groups.

Teaching Experience:

Prior to teaching in England I have four years full time teaching experience at all levels in a secondary school in France and one year's teaching experience part-time in the University of Jean Monnet teaching adults. At the same time I was teaching part-time with two French language agencies. And doing translation work for the Saint-Etienne Court.

I passed my PTLLS with Peterborough College Of Adult Education which allowed me to develop my language, teaching and lesson planning skills. I was able to develop effective lesson plans while creating a fun learning environment.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been working as a private language tutor for students, travellers and corporate clients including the BBC and Standard Charter Bank. I regularly provide customised language programmes to British diplomats and civil servants. I conduct both one-to-one and group tutoring lessons focusing on reading, writing and speaking, with a particular emphasis on business vocabulary for my corporate clients. I also impart my knowledge of the culture and costumes of the country in my lessons.

Personal Description:
My name is Ed. I recently graduated from Durham University with 1st class honours in Maths and Physics. I achieved straight A result with six A-levels including Maths, Further Maths, German, Physics, Chemistry and Chinese. I am an experienced tutor and have previously tutored students from a variety of schools and institutions. I am very patient and my primary focus is to help you achieve your goals and objectives.

I currently work in the finance industry. I also work as a private tutor for two top private tutoring agencies in London.

I am flexible and can travel to you. I am available in the evenings on weekdays and anytime on the weekends.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I can provide you references upon request.

Teaching Experience:

Private Tutor at Bonas Macfarlane, London, July 2010 - Present
I tutor a variety of subjects at different levels from primary schools to A-levels. I teach Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and Chinese. I also offer service on giving academic advice as well as interview techniques for entering into top schools and universities in the UK.

Private Tutor at Bright Young Things, London, September 2012 - Present
Bright Young Things is the second largest tutoring agency after Bonas Macfarlane whom I also work for. With Bright Young Things my focus had been Maths at A-level and GCSE.

University Marker, Department of Mathematics, Durham University, October 2009 - May 2010
I mentored second year Maths undergraduates at Durham University. I have learned to work through the arguments and thought processes of others and give constructive feedback.

Sixth Form Tutor, Framwellgate Sixth Form College, Durham, October 2006 - June 2009
I tutored Maths (GCSE, A-Level), Chemistry (GCSE, A-level), German (GCSE, A-Level) and Chinese (GCSE, A-Level) at Durham Framwellgate Sixth Form College for three years. I helped all of my tutees achieve more than what they were initially targeting to achieve. I also learned to prepare teaching materials and adopt various teaching methods.

Teaching Assistant, Student Associate Scheme, Middlesbrough, June to July 2008
Co-operated between the Training and Developing Agency (TDA) and the target schools in the Northeast, I worked alongside experienced teachers to gain classroom teaching experience.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is simple and effective. The general framework is to go through general concepts that are fundamental to student's understanding on the subject through the use of simple examples. I will then reinforce the message and encourage students to work on more specific and challenging problems. Confidence is key and it is vital that my tutees are constantly motivated and encouraged in order to self-develop both at an academic and personal level.

I also strive to make lessons as interactive as I can. I understand the different learning needs of different students. I will always be flexible and will do my best to help you succeed.

Personal Description:
¡Hola! My name is Ana. I am a native speaker of Spanish and a qualified teacher here in the UK. With over two years experience of teaching in schools and tutoring adults on a one-to-one basis, I will help you reach your goals, be they learning some holiday basics or help with assignments for school or university. I am an enthusiastic, organised and friendly individual with a passion for teaching, especially Spanish, where I get to share my home language and culture.

Lessons will be tailored to your specific requirements and will be at a speed and level that suits your learning style. I always strive to make my lessons as enjoyable and practical as possible where you will learn real life skills and gain confidence. As a native speaker with a neutral accent, you will learn correct pronunciation that will be understood the world over.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 2 years experience of teaching adults Spanish and in this time I have taught a wide variety of abilities and levels. As well as adult tutoring, I currently teach Spanish in several Primary schools and have experience of teaching up to A-Levels.

I completed my teacher training in Spain and hold Qualified Teacher Status here in the UK. I have been working in UK schools for over 1 year now.

Tutoring Approach:

My interest in teaching and share my knowledge inspired me to start my career in the education sector. Although I have, so far, had little teaching experience I feel that I am confident enough in both subjects to tutor the ages I have specified. I adapt my lessons to student's needs and interests.

Personal Description:
After school and university (where I read English literature & philosophy) I worked for a television production company as a researcher, before applying to drama school.

Like many tutors, I am an actor and tutoring is one of the various jobs I do to supplement my acting career, and the one that I find most rewarding.

Teaching Experience:

As well as English, I also tutor elocution & accents, give guitar lessons, and I do one-to-one role-play tuition for medical students preparing for their clinical exams.

Besides individual lessons, I have run public speaking workshops and taught classes for Italian teenagers learning English.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to get straight to the specific needs of each pupil and adapt my lessons as closely as possible to that individual student. I also attempt to cut through the jargon of assessment objectives, technical terms and exam rubric and explain in plain language what is required and ensure that my pupils understand.

Studying English & philosophy taught me to think critically and express myself clearly, which is essential when assessing a pupil's ability and helping them to grasp ideas. I find that my training as an actor, with a concentration on listening and responding has allowed me to be very adaptable and aware of what a pupil needs.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified high school teacher with 18 years' experience of teaching English, Media Communication, Drama and Study Skills to 11-19 year olds. I have held the posts of Head of Drama, Director of Creative Arts and I have led teaching and learning across a range of senior leadership roles, including Principal. I previously worked for the BBC and was awarded a BAFTA for my role in a TV documentary series. I am educated to Masters degree level and hold a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts degree in Digital Media, Politics and Performing Arts. Prior to entering the teaching profession, I gained industry experience in marketing with Lego UK Ltd. I live in Wrexham, North Wales with my young family and I count playing guitar, filmmaking, photography, cricket and graphic design as my main interests.

My experience as a classroom teacher and school leader has developed my expertise in a range of educational strategies, including: personalising learning; active engagement; cooperative learning; maximising achievement; leadership and innovation


EDUCATION HISTORY

- University of Wales, Aberystwyth, Post Graduate Certificate in Secondary Drama, October 1997 - August 1998
- De Montfort University, Leicester, BA Combined Honours in Digital Media, Politics and Performing Arts (2:1), October 1992 - June 1995
- University of Bradford, Diploma in 'Electronic Media', October 1991 - June 1992

- St. David's High School, Wrexham, September 1984 - August 1989, 10 GCSEs, grade A-C, including Maths and English

Teaching Experience:

My expertise has been developed through 18 years experience of teaching English, Media Communication, Drama and Study Skills to 11-19 year olds, and leading whole-school portfolios in teaching and learning, assessment, staff development and curriculum. Embracing the challenge of leading a school in difficult circumstances, I led a dynamic and vibrant community committed to achieving success for all learners, raising aspirations and learning together in a supportive and orderly environment. My overarching leadership secured sustainable improvements in the quality of teaching which, in turn, led to significantly improved outcomes for students which saw the academy move from 'Special Measures' to a 'good' Ofsted judgement. I have a proven track record of leading students and staff to significantly improved outcomes.

- Teacher of Drama and English, September 1998 - August 1999

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is characterised by the following commitments I make to every learner I have the privilege of working with:

- I will place all learners firmly at the centre of the learning experience
- I will lead all learners towards understanding how they learn best and be mindful that academic success is underpinned by aspiration, healthy levels of self-belief, stress management, courage, organisational ability, resilience, creativity and motivation. And that's to name but a few!
- I will hold the highest expectations of all learners and craft memorable learning activities that will encourage a love of learning
- I understand that behind every set of examination results, irrespective of the scores, must stand a person who is equipped, personally, socially and culturally, to prosper in the 21st Century. For this reason, academic tutoring/coaching will always focus on personal as well as academic development.

The Study Skills coaching I offer can help resolve a wide range of common issues that can be barriers to effective learning.If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the following questions, study skills coaching could well be an investment that brings real value to your child and their future:

- Is your child's effort beginning to slip?
- Do behavioural issues exist in the school setting?
- Is your child frequently getting detentions for forgetting homework or being late?
- Do school reports show a dip in academic attainment?
- Does your child struggle to contribute to classroom activities, for example, answering questions or speaking publicly?
- Does your child give up too easily?
- Would your child benefit from improved social skills?
- Does your child become anxious around examination periods?
- Does your child require increased focus and attention prior to key examinations, e.g. entrance examinations, Year 6 standardised attainment tests and GCSE exams?

Flexible, personalised programmes can commence at any point during the year.

The first session is essential for the success of the programme going forward. In this session, we evaluate current learning strengths and weaknesses in the individual student. In order to get a full picture of the student's learning priorities, we undertake the following activities to determine areas for improvement and the best conditions for success:

- reflections from the student on how they feel about their learning experience
- a learning survey - it's good fun and gives the child/student a really useful exercise in self-reflection
- analysis of recent written reports which contain teacher comments and grades recording attainment, effort, attitude to learning, punctuality, etc. School reports can vary in format so it may be that not all this detail is available
- we ask that a parent/teacher is involved for the duration of this first session to provide their own reflections on the learning profile of the child
- completion of a personalised learning contract whereby the child/student, parent/teacher and coach agree on the required conditions needed for the child/student to be successful during the programme.

Personal Description:
I`m a 24 year old recent Physics graduate, based in Ascott (about 10 minutes from Chipping Norton). I`m patient, knowledgable and have a passion for the sciences!

I`m currently applying for a PhD in Nuclear Physics to start September 2017 and am working as a part-time private tutor in the meantime.

As part of my degree, I completed 3 years of studying, combined with a year of industrial research experience in Cambridge. Before this, I studied A-levels in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and History, in addition to 10 GCSEs.

Outside of work, I enjoy everything from football and tennis to hiking and rock climbing.

Teaching Experience:

I have been a freelance private tutor for almost two years now, working in both the West Yorkshire area (whilst attending University) and the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire areas (following the completion of my degree). My tutoring experience includes all three Sciences and Mathematics at Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and GCSE/iGCSE levels, along with Maths and Physics at AS/A2 and degree levels.

Alongside my Physics degree, I partook in an optional 10 month `Physics in Schools` placement - which saw me work as a part-time teaching assistant for Maths and Physics classes at a local secondary school. In addition to helping out during classes (lesson planning, 1-to-1 support, marking etc.), I also ran after school maths and science tutoring sessions for students struggling with the course.

In addition, for 12 months during my `Year in Industry`, I represented my employer as a "Young Engineer`s Ambassador" to local schools in the Cambridge area. Twice a week, alongside a team of 3, I helped demonstrate basic scientific, mathematical and mechanical engineering methods to classes of all ages - with the intention of inspiring the next generation of potential scientists. The sessions included presentations, 1-to-1 guidance and interactive group workshops.

Tutoring Approach:

Having struggled slightly with Maths at a young age and, as a result, having undertaken extra sessions (aged 11), I am a huge believer in the benefits that can come from 1-to-1 tutoring. I aim to create a balance between a fun, relaxed teaching atmosphere, where students can feel confident enough to fully engage in the material, and a secure structured teaching environment with a clear plan for the future. I employ a wide variety of teaching materials in order to keep notoriously dull content interesting and intuitive, whilst ensuring that no method, theory or equation is relegated to the realms of confusion and mystery.

Overall, I have a flexible teaching style and will always formulate a teaching plan using the input from the student, parent/guardian and myself, with detailed progress updates after each session so the client can feel confident they are getting their money's worth!
